This one is a keeper! A big hit with my very fussy 2 year old daughter. Love the smoothness and the cheesy taste :)

2 cups brocolli, cut into small florets
1-2 tbsp butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cube, chicken stock
3/4 cup boiling water
1/4 cup evapourated milk (optional)
1 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
2 pods garlic, crushed
2 tbsps cheese, grated ( I used cheddar)
pepper to taste
swirl of cream on top (optional)

  • In a bowl dissolve the chicken stock in 1 cup of boiling water. keep aside.
  • Melt butter in a pressure cooker and saute the garlic.

  • Add the chopped onions and saute till they become soft.

  • Add the brocolli florets and  and stir for about a minute
  • Add the pepper powder.
  • pour the chicken stock in and add the coriander leaves. close the pressure cooker and cook for about 2 whistles.

  • switch off the flame and place the cooker under cool running water. After it has cooled off open and simmer on low.
  • Add the cheese. switch off the flame

  • cool and then puree it
  • serve with your choice of bread

hi star fashion,
yes...we can make it easily without a pressure cooker too! just add a little more water and increase the cooking time and you're good to go :)
just remember to cook on a slow flame and keep stirring so that the bottoms dont catch.
